Hidden beach in Mexico looks like something out of a fantasy novel.
Also known as the Playa del Amor, this secret beach is located in Las Marietas Islands.
Formed by volcanic activity over thousands of years, today the islands are a nationally protected bird sanctuary. They are also a shelter for different marine species.
There were numerous efforts in the past to legally protect this archipelago. The park which spans 1,400 hectares was finally pronounced a national park in 2005. This now protected marine park, wasn’t always a safe haven. It is believed that the hole that created the Hidden Beach was a result of deliberate bombing. The Marietas Islands have always been uninhabited, making them ideal spot for military testing. Many caves and different rock formations on the island are the result of numerous bomb tests. Today kayaking, swimming and sunbathing are the only activities allowed on the island.
A gaping hole in the surface of the lush green island opens onto a secret beach with crystal-clear water.
The Hidden Beach in Mexico is invisible from the outside. To reach this secluded paradise, tourists need to swim through a short tunnel. There is approximately six feet of space above water level, so visitors can reach the beach by kayaking as well. Peak season for the beach is January through March. To avoid tourists, you should visit it during the spring. La Playa del Amor will definitely leave you speechless.
